Something you may not know about me...

Deep breath.....ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh..


I am afraid of Clowns. Yep. You read that right. Clowns really creep me out.

And do not even get me started on the movie "It" by Stephen King. I had nightmares for years.

I do not know why. And it is not something I tell people about. For years, the only person that knew was my husband.

Until last year. When my Father-in-law came up to visit and gave clown noses to my kids as a fun gift. It was horrible. I did not say anything when the twins put them on. I thought I was okay. But then they came right up to my face and started to laugh crazily. That did it. I bolted upright and moved away from them. James was watching me the entire time. Waiting to see what would happen and trying not to laugh. I had told him about my little phobia, but he had never seen it first hand.

My FIL looked at me like I was crazy. Then, James told him about my fear of clowns. I think he still thought I was odd, but at least he understood why I was freaking out.

And my kids aren't much help. They think it is hysterical that clowns wig me out. They have fun with this little tidbit.

EXAMPLE: My daughter was watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade last year and she started screaming "Mommmy! Come here! Look!" I came around the corner and ask what she needed. She looked at me and while laughing she said...


The tv was filled with clowns. Lots of them! Ugghhh!

She really got a kick out it. I vacated the room immediately. I could still hear her laughing as I went upstairs. Where does she get that from? LOL

You are probably wondering why I am telling you all this now.

Well, I always thought that it was silly being afraid of clowns. I mean, how can you be scared of something that is suppose to bring joy and happiness to everyone. I cannot even go to a circus. I get cold chills just thinking about it.

Then, I saw a commercial during the Superbowl. It has become my favorite commercial of all time. Makes me feel like I am not alone. LOL

Click it and enjoy!

What are you afraid of?

Can you share it with me? So, I do not feel like such an oddball?

Please????????????????? LOL

Have a great weekend.

Hey Kathleen! How have you been? Hope the baby is doing well. I hear you on the clowns thing, they can be quite creepy along with dolls that have the eyes that blink. My big weird fear is.. BIRDS! I know, weird but it's true. I am afraid of birds. Take care, Kelly

Snakes!!! Can't stand them. Even the little itty-bitty garden variety. They give me the creeps and I go running into the house. Almost can't even stand to go barefoot in the grass for fear there may be one that I can't see slithering beneath my feet. Yikes!

I am with Jill on the snakes. I can handle bugs, lizards, spiders, but no snakes. I am scared to death of them. It is because my grandmother lived in the country and always put the fear of God in us about stepping on a snake.

There was a Seinfeld episode about Kramer being afraid of clowns.
